The college offers a number of "emphasis" degrees in specific majors. An "emphasis" degree is one designed by the college. It includes the college Core Curriculum required in all degrees plus courses within the student's desired major. Students pursuing an "emphasis" degree should work closely with an advisor to ensure all courses will transfer and count toward the major at the selected institution to which the student plans to transfer. An "Articulated Emphasis" degree is one that will transfer to specified universities. As additional Emphasis Degrees are made available, information may be located below. The following Emphasis Degrees are currently available:
